Sometimes Your Demonstrations Make Sense
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
Why do you hand me that noose?
Is this your attempt at comedy?
Please I didn't mean to offend.
I know you are accustomed to saying,
'I am hanging in there! '
I thought it would be of a benefit to you,
If you did not swing too far from where you hung.
It didn't occur to me you spoke figuratively! '
Your demonstrations make sense.
At at other times,
I wish I had kept my mouth closed.
